Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically, rapid tests for COVID-19 are not allowed to be sold freely. Examinations with rapid tests are also not very accurate, so they must always be confirmed by PCR. In Indonesia, many people sell COVID rapid tests online, but it is not clear whether the rapid tests are genuine or fake (most likely fake because the number of COVID rapid tests is very limited and cannot be traded freely).
All types of COVID examinations, both rapid tests and PCRs, cannot be done haphazardly so far because the numbers are still very limited. The examination is only indicated to be carried out on people who have clear exposure to people with COVID-19, or people who show only obvious symptoms (coughing, fever, shortness of breath). If indeed your friend is included in the monitoring (suspect), it means that your friend does not have a clear exposure to patients with COVID-19 and does not have clear symptoms. Checks are not yet indicated. Your friend only has to undergo self-isolation at home for 14 days to ensure there are no symptoms of COVID-19.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
